A national police campaign is underway to help make streets in Cumbria safer.

The aim is to try and remove potentially dangerous and harmful blades from the streets with a scheme to dispose of them anonymously and safely with a number of special amnesty bins being provided at local police station.

Police Officers are visiting schools to help educate young people about the potential consequences, and teams are carrying out test purchases to make sure retailers are not selling knives to children.

Police say Cumbria is a safe county and they are urging young people and shop keepers to keep-it-safe and protect local communities.
